Introduction to High-Rise Structural Design with Arnaud Thibonnier
As cities continue to pursue policies stressing density, structural systems continue to be pushed to even greater heights. As part of WGI’s Lunch & Learn Webinar Series, our very own Arnaud Thibonnier, P.E., S.E., Director, Structural Engineering provided an in-depth introduction on the unique considerations of “high-rise” structural design.
If you missed the live webinar on October 14th, 2020, then you are in luck! You can watch the embedded video below or on our YouTube channel.
Arnaud helps define what a “High-Rise” structure is, and identifies the relevant code sections that guide the design. Arnaud also compares structural systems and their feasibility at different heights, structural shape efficiencies, and building aerodynamic shape efficiencies. He also covers the importance of wind tunnel tests, the limitations of a code-only based approach, as well as dynamic analysis and building motion.
